How many times has her name been mentioned on local television stations over the years since Ralph Kramden mentioned her as a cast member of a fictitious late, late late show movie in the 'TV or Not TV' episode of The Honeymooners?

Ms. Twelvetrees was also often name-checked, along with Maria Ouspenskaya by Johnny Carson's Art Fern character in the Tea Time Movie bits.

Thanx Sock for the Maria Ouspenskaya reference! Do we have a character actress today who can come close to matching the pure vinegar of her disapproving eye?
